Miles Ryan's life seemed to end the day his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. As deputy sheriff of New Bern, North Carolina, he not only grieves for her and worries about their young son Jonah but longs to bring the unknown driver to justice. Then Miles meets Sarah Andrews, Jonah's second-grade teacher. A young woman recovering from a difficult divorce, Sarah moved to New Bern hoping to start over. Tentatively, Miles and Sarah reach out to each other...soon they are falling in love. But what neither realizes is that they are also bound together by a shocking secret, one that will force them to reexamine everything they believe in-including their love.
Deputy sheriff Miles Ryan and elementary-school teacher Sarah Andrews have both been hurt by past relationships. Single dad Miles's wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident, and Sarah's husband dumped her because she's infertile. Miles and Sarah kindle a romance after meeting at a school function, but there's a sinister connection between Sarah and Miles's wife's death which threatens to destroy the fledgling relationship.
